In addition to Hillary’s stunning loss to Trump in the election, we now know another mind blowing fact. Hillary spent a fortune only to come up short. In fact, she broke a spending record by investing over a billion dollars to lose.
The New York Post reports:
Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign cost a record $1.2B
Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.
The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.
Clinton’s expensive machine tore through $131.8 million in just the final weeks, finishing with about $839,000 on hand as of Nov. 28.
Team Trump spent $94.5 million in the home stretch — from Oct. 20 to Nov. 28 — and had $7.6 million left.
The figures include all spending by the campaigns, PACs and party committees.
To make matters worse for Democrats, Trump spent only a fraction of what Hillary did. And he still won!
It just goes to show that sometimes the message is more important than the money. Trump had a winning message for the people and they responded accordingly. The rest, as they say, is history.
